  • Mother board for EDIUS SP / SDI

    Hello.

    I must ensamble a system with EDIUS SP/SDI. I am thinking in a SUPERMICRO X7DAE motherboard. But I have some question about phisical distribution of SP SDI cards ... I am not sure how are them distributed an if I will have space in the motherboard for accommodating them.

    I think SP/SDI have thre cards: main card, SDI card and HD components card. I know last one is PCI, but I don´t know what of the others have the PCI express conection, and if I have any restriction for installation or I can install them in any order.

    Please, any one knows it?

    EDIUS SP-SDI only has two boards. The SDI I/O module is plugged into the SP mainboard. It will still take up a slot in the PC chassis, but you only need two physical slots free on the motherboard.

      Thanks ... this is the information I need .

        You got to be real careful if you are planning on a RAID card with this board and the SP SDI, you will need a PCI-X card if you do.
        The slot layout doesn't make it easy but then GV didn't make it easy either when they designed the gorrila.



        There's 2 PCI-e with one PCI in between + 3 PCI-X slots on the Supermicro board.
        The SP-SDI has 1 X PCI-e with bolted on SDI card and 1 PCI connection.

        Assuming your first 16x PCi-e slot has your graphics card (which must be a single card slot design), the next slot is the PCI and this is where you will need to put your component out card (looped back behind the SP baseboard which is located in the next slot (a 4X PCI-e slot). This leaves the bolt on card to occupy the sapce of the first PCI-x 133 slot leaving only the last 133 PCI-X slot for a RAID card or the 100 PCI-X slot at the end (not a good choice). SO you have one option for a RAID card and it must work in that slot without IRQ issues as mine did before i moved it over one slot.
        Of course you could lay them as illustrated but then you would have no PCI-X 133 slots at all to use.

        Not sure I've explained it too well? Anyway the bad design of this SP SDI card would be a real concern to me.

          Mark,
          Does that thing do HD? Or is it just a different version of the existing SP?

            EDIUS SP-SDI is SD-SDI only.

              Yes ... I have same opinion about design ....
              By now I was thinking in doing the RAID with four INTERNAL 750 GB disks, and leave one SATA conector free for convert in an external SATA conector, by means of an front panel bay.

              I think this does not have any problem.

              Any way, I think i popultate the to PCI-X free solot with an M-AUDIO card and an firewire 800 card.
